Simply Say “Namo Amida Butsu” (October 15)

When you join Dharma Service at the San Mateo Buddhist Temple you will hear the words “Namo Amida Butsu” chanted, spoken, and sung throughout the service. This Sunday, Rev. Henry will share reflections on the meaning of “Namo Amida Butsu,” when we can say it, and why we celebrate it as a Buddhist practice that is truly for everyone.

From the Letters of Rennyo Shonin (Gobunsho) Fascicle 5, Letter 17:

. . . you should simply say “Namo Amida Butsu, Namo Amida Butsu, …” whether awake or asleep, with gratitude and appreciation, accepting deep in your mind Amida Tathagata’s readiness to save you.
